A one-off opportunity to take part in Margaret's first wild swim retreat in the Highlands. Two days of wild dipping, creativity and well-being. Arrival will be on the evening of the 21st August.
Spend a couple of days connecting to nature through water and nourishing your body and mind for a couple of days in the Highlands of Scotland.
This retreat will be taking place in Margaret's home village of Drumnadrochit. With trips to the best locations that she knows so well for swimming, enjoying walks, photography, or simply soaking in the Highlands. You will stay locally and be collected for our trips, meet up for creative sessions, and dinner together.

​There are 3 single occupancy rooms available in a beautiful self-catering house in Drumnadrochit. You are welcome to stay in another hotel, B & B or campsite in Drumnadrochit. Please be aware that accommodation is hard to come by in August, so let us know if you would like a room in the house.
